We found staff to be friendly and courteous, Food excellent. Great location with Kilkenny Castle in close view across the river. Room very comfortable, though wardrobe needs some adjustment. We would stay again.

A very nice hotel, reception staff were very friendly the location is ideal and right in the middle of everything. We had to order an iron which is annoying as I believe Hotels should have one in every room. A bottle of water in the room would be a nice touch. The breakfast was very good and again very helpful...

My husband and I arrived after 4pm on Wednesday 22nd July and our room wasn't ready. The next day we had a privacy sign on the door when we went to breakfast and a bag containing towels was left hanging on the door and later put on a bed in our room but no housekeeping was done, bed left unmade....

Stayed for one night. The hotel is located in central Kilkenny and close to the castle and major shopping areas. Check in was efficient and the receptionist thoughtfully placed us in a room at the opposite end of the hotel to the wedding which was being held the same night. The room was spacious with good quality furnishings and the... More

I attended a wedding here recently and have to say I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel. It had been a while since I had been here before and the reception area has received a lovely bright make over. After the civil ceremony on site we went out to reception where we were served lovely canapes with tea or coffee... More

Our stay in the River Court Hotel was too brief. The location and building itself are both beautiful and perfect for exploring the charming Kilkenny but it was the nature of the way we were treated by the ever caring and conscientious staff during our stay that has compelled us to share our experience. This kind of service is rare... More

Attended a wedding and stayed over, a hotel that seemed to be devoid of any forward planning, that just grew, and expanded. expect a long. walk to bedrooms, as the lift stops a long way from your accommodation, that's my only gripe with this establishment, all the staff very helpful, the food excellent, breakfast a self service buffet with a...

We have stayed here several times and we like the atmosphere, the food and the staff. Very good 3 - night offers too. Great location next to the river, opposite the castle but right in the city centre. It's perfect for us. Just one snag, it is impossible to shut the bedroom doors from the outside without slamming!
